  • According to a study by Intuit, small business owners with no employees average $44k of revenue per year while small business owners with 1-4 employees average $387k of revenue per year. 97.5% of Black women businesses in the United States do not have a single employee.

    Hiring someone to help with your business - whether an employee or a contractor - can feel like a daunting task. After all, you’ve probably gotten used to doing everything yourself and the idea of hiring someone else feels out of reach financially. But the numbers above tell a different story. The reality is, your business can’t afford to NOT hire someone once it reaches a certain stage.

    In this workshop, we’ll talk about how to know when to hire your first or next employee/contractor, including writing a job description, creating an interview process, determining salary and rates, and creating a positive work environment.

    This event is a womxn-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of womxn. We are welcoming and respectful of womxn, including trans womxn and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a womxn in a way that is significant to them. We also welcome allies who are committed to creating environments that are supportive of people who are typically underrepresented in the workplace and beyond.

    Please make sure to read our code of conduct before coming to our event!

    "I absolutely loved the tables! IRL events I have horrible social anxiety so it's super hard for me to dive into a conversation by walking up to a group. Having these set topics made me feel instantly welcomed and able to really get into the topics with everyone. I wish more events were run this way."

     

    "For being a virtual event, it was surprisingly easy to engage and feel connected to people. I loved the UI with the tables and table topics, and the speaker part worked very well too."

     

    "Wonderful content and great conversations. This was my first event and I found it very valuable. I also loved the virtual interface, it's very user-friendly."

     

    "The speeches were intriguing and the online forum was incredible! The virtual chairs and tables where attendees could mingle, offered a perfect alternative to physical meetups during our time of social distancing."

  • DAM and Museums

    • Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 10:00 AM
    • Online in Online
    • $300.00 USD

    We invite you to join us for a new online event to learn and connect with members of the museums, cultural heritage and DAM community. Learn how today's infrastructure and technology supports art and culture, and how a Digital Asset Management system is becoming the creative link between technology and art.

    You'll hear keynotes from the industry's leading experts, participate in panel discussions, and network with fellow professionals. We will address key topics such as Integration with Digital Collection Management and Web CMS Systems, Video, Metadata, Governance, Rights, AI and Machine Learning, Onboarding, Workflow, the COVID response and more.

    Never has there been a more vibrant motivation for the museum community to come together, share experiences and celebrate a collective sense of togetherness.

    Registration is free for all museum and non-profit professionals and includes:

    - 10+ sessions
    - Live Q and A - the chance to get your questions answered by the experts
    - Access to the online event platform with presenter profiles and networking opportunities
    - A museum specific vendor exhibition with 1-on-1 demos
    - Roundtable discussions with your community in the lounges
    - Recordings of all sessions to view on demand

    This event aims to empower you with the knowledge of how DAM systems are transforming the way museum professionals manage rich media files, centralizing assets so that employees can easily upload, share and access them whenever and wherever they need. Find out just why GLAM needs a DAM!

    The growth of digital assets has been phenomenal and the pace of growth AND the importance of managing and monetizing those assets is increasing with each passing month. We've seen it all - from slow incremental change all the way to rapid, disruptive, revolutionary change. We've seen it, discussed it, explored its implications and presented opinions on what to do as a consequence.

    We embrace the divergence while observing the commonality of learning needs. Our speakers and panelists who are experts and accomplished leaders in DAM have this firmly in mind as they share their experiences with our audience. Their insights are practical; their work is far-reaching; they deal with how digital assets impact everyday business and what must be done as a consequence.
